The amazon deal I posted is for a different gotrax scooter. Original website has gxl for $270 with code r/electricscooters while amazon has g2 for $200.99 with clipped coupon. G2 has less speed and less range compared to gxl.

They aren't the same scooters. Tires tell the story on these things, one is a decent cushy ride and the other is just a powered razor scooter with lower range. Really only for 'kids in the cul-de-sac' kinda riding, not commuting.

Still, I'd rather pay the additional $30 from Amazon than a nightmare to return / deal with any other sellers, especially on a heavy item.

For $299.00 on amazon, this is the a very good price right now, fyi. The Xiaomi Mi is $450, and has been more dependable, but depends on your budget.

I have the GXL V2 (with handbrake). The V1 doesn't have the handbrake and relied on the rear fender brake (the fender tend to physically break).

There's a Facebook group (very small compared to the Xiomi Facebook group) but there's people who post feedback and comments.

The good thing about the air-filled tires is that it's a smoother ride versus the smaller and solid tires. However, people have commented that changing the tubes is a major headache. I've filled my tires with Slime as a preventative measure. I use mine about 2-3 times a month. Other people in the Facebook group use it as their daily commuter....even in snow!

I got mine at Costco at the end of last year. The warranty from GoTrax is only 90 days, so I wanted the Costco warranty. Some people had good experiences dealing directly with GoTrax, and others had bad. I'm concerned a bit about the durability of the back fender because that's where the top part hooks when you fold up the scooter and carry it.

Haven't really tested the range on it because I only go about 4-5 miles when I do use it. But I have gotten up to 16.4 MPH, which is plenty fast for me.

It's ships and sold by Golabs Inc..on Amazon. So you're not protected by any amazon policies there.

I don't have either of these, but I've used kick scooters with air-filled and polyurethane. Here are my thoughts:
Polyurethane: slightly faster, less comfortable ride, quite slippery when wet (scary!).
Air-filled: much more comfortable if there's any unevenness on the pavement, wet pavement is not an issue at all, slightly slower, filling up the tires are kind of a pain - the tires are so small so it's hard to get at the valve - and you have to do it somewhat frequently (presumably since even a small amount of loss = significant psi change on a small tire).

Overall, I definitely recommend air-filled, but they're not without important drawbacks.

Read the G2 reviews on Amazon. Not too good. I wouldn't risk it. Just my two cents. I am in the market for a decent electric scooter for a campground but I think I'll wait.

Can you swap batteries on these? I have a 19 mile commute to work and traffic going home is a parking lot. If I could swap batteries I could ride it to work.
